Is this #GoodbyeSaltSpring?

We have created an exhibition: quotes, excerpts, and photos from these heart breaking #GoodbyeSaltSpring stories have been made beautiful by a talented local designer and posted, in a quilt like fashion, on the windows next to Salt Spring Coffee. It’s a powerful display of what’s going on in our community today.
